WORD WONDERS’ TBR EXPANSION : Books with main F/F pairings

f-f pairings

Hello friends !

So. Today is Valentine’s Day and I’m back with a recommendations post. While trying to figure out what to choose as this month’s “representation” I remembered that for some folks the month is aaaaall about romance and things like that, which is great if you’re into it but if you’ve followed me for a while, you know that this is my third february blogging and I’ve never done anything different to celebrate this date buuuut I figured since a lot of people read romance this month and that f/f relationships are severely overlooked, I decided it’s the perfect time to highlight them. So yeah, for this month, I will be recommending books with female/female relationships.

  1. This is a great list! Just yesterday, I was realizing that the number of f/f books I’ve read is almost non-existent. Miseducation of Cameron Post, Girls Made of Snow and Glass…. and that might be it?? But Moira Fowley-Doyle, Into the Drowning Deep, and Of Fire and Stars are all definitely on my list.

  2. this is such a good list!! and I’ve read a lot of them so I can tell you info.
    The list for Reign of the Fallen is discussion of addiction and grief, on-page death and gore, on-page sex.
    The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo is parental and spousal abuse, death, homophobia, biphobia, and racism [all challenged – more discussion of systematic issues than on-page stuff].
    The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet is discussions of racism and colonialism [all challenged]. Passing Strange is major homophobia and spousal abuse. Girls Made of Snow and Glass is parental emotional abuse.
    Under the Lights is threatened outing [does not occur!] and discussion of racism, sexism, and homophobia in Hollywood – I don’t think any major homophobia is on page, but I could be remembering wrong?
    Spellbook of the Lost and Found is discussion of rape [none on page at all], alcoholism, and a sort of weird moment where a character accidentally had a crush on her biological sister? They don’t know they’re sisters and they don’t pursure a relationship at all [crush has ended by time of the reveal], but yeah.
    The Apocalypse of Elena Mendoza is domestic abuse and alcoholism, lots of discussion of hard topics but not much on-page brutality.

  5. So many good recommendations! I’ve got a bunch in the works on my currently-reading shelf and more waiting in the wings. 🙂

    If it helps, I haven’t gotten to this part yet but I’ve seen screenshots and other people have mentioned that there’s deadnaming in The Apocalypse of Elena Mendoza.
